Applies to TestComplete 15.10, last modified on December 07, 2021
This property is obsolete. See the Remarks section below.


This property is used by methods of the Utilities object for converting strings to date and time values. To be more specific, the variable is used to convert strings that hold years in the two-digit format. In this case, the converting routines (StrToDate or StrToDateTime) subtract the TwoDigitYearCenturyWindow value from the current year and then use the resulting number as the base for determining the century to which the two-digit-year date belongs. For instance, if the string to be converted is “5/01/09”, the current year is 1998 and TwoDigitYearCenturyWindow is 100, the resultant date will be January, 5, 1909. If TwoDigitYearCenturyWindow is 40, the resultant date will be January, 5, 2009.
